candidates such as daughter-in-law Lara
and Marjorie Taylor Green in favor of
'electable' Republicans

Original Article

Mitch McConnell has said he is open to opposing any 'unelectable' candidates in 2022, even if they are strongly backed by Donald Trump, as he wrestles with how to handle a deeply-divided party following Trump's impeachment hearing.McConnell voted on Saturday to acquit the former president, but then publicly attacked him, accusing him of a 'disgraceful dereliction of duty' in his most critical remarks ever uttered.His tightrope walk between defending and demonizing the former president impressed few.

By ‘electable’ republicans, does he mean like that crowd Trump ran over in 2016, including Cruz? Don’t get me wrong, Ted Cruz is a great guy, but Trump had more of a vision for the country and was not afraid of getting down and dirty with the Dems. By the way, how was McConnell not “divisive?” If ALL the Republicans got behind Trump 1000%, we wouldn’t now be subject to a Biden White House! Trump in 2024!

I suspect Mitch will have a lot less donated money to throw away next time. He has caused the Republicans to lose enough seats that hopefully those of us on this site are not the only ones to see through his antics purposely keeping Republicans in the majority for his own selfish goals. There, I didn't say any bad words.

It appears that Mitch's dislike of Trump has finally pushed him over the edge. Of course WE want people who are electable but we also want people who will support the Republican ideals and NOT vote against his/her party. Mitch has displayed more and more mental lapses in many of his utterances and actions. Maybe it is time to hang it up Mitch so we can elect someone who is true to the party.

Not really anything new for Mitch. He has a record of opposing conservative Republicans. One of the most egregious examples was the Chris McDaniel vs. Thad Cochran primary in which the Mitch group employed very dirty and well funded tactics to ensure that virtually senile Thad would win over the more conservative candidate.

At this point a McConnell endorsement in a Republican primary would be the "kiss of death." Moreover, if McConnell is still in the leadership all Republican Senators up for reelection in 2022 should expect to be primaried.

Mitch has been involved in the Senate going back to 64, as a page and intern and staffer. The DC window is the only one he looks out, swamp water all he drinks. This is his existence and the idea of an elitist aristocracy is what he understands to the exclusion of all else. The same can be said for Murkowski, the Bushes and Romney. They are owned by specific donors, big tobacco, big banks, planned parenthood, and as we know now, the Chinese, in levels we did not fully understand before Trump. Populists are to be seen and not heard. Founding father ideals are for suckers.

McConnell is delusional if he believes he has more influence than President Trump. The President proved himself these last four years as a man who is dedicated to improving the lives of all Americans. Mitch, on the other hand, continues to prove himself to be nothing more than a self-serving member of the deep state for more than 35 years. Americans know how President Trump worked tirelessly on their behalf and fought the deep state everyday to make this country safe and prosperous. What has this pompous fool done for the country but made himself wealthy and powerful. He made a grave error by attacking President Trump because the American people know who has their back and it certainly is not China Mitch. All these Republicans who are piling on President Trump are foolish to believe that his supporters are going to trust them when we know they have done nothing for the country or it’s people. The wheat has been divided from the chaff thanks to the guy who refused to be part of their corrupt political cabal. Politically speaking, men like McConnell and the rest of the Rinos are dead men walking. We refuse to pay these grifters one more dime to betray us and enrich themselves. Get rid of them all.

We will have our own candidates, like Lara, and we will vote her in with or without YOUR Blessing. Who do you think you are! We are going to throw out your Buddies next time they are up for election and replace them with Trump loving Senators.

I will support POTUS Trump again if he runs. I will support anyone who will run on the vision of DT and with the tenacity which he so effortlessly demonstrated. POTUS Trump pulled back the curtain, broke down the wall, and laid bare the disgusting men and women who populate the halls of power at every level. He forced the radicals to show all their cards (riots, violence, election fraud, unconstitutional laws) from the local city government right up to the halls of power in the executive branch. He forced the elected Democrats and Republicans who are essentially HYDRA from the marvel movies, to come to the surface and fight for survivial. TRUMP 2024!

The Senate Republicans put Mitch in the leadership role. That tells me all I need to know about the majority of Senate republicans. It isn't just about Mitch or Romney or the other well known Party Traitors. These 50 Republicans, as a whole, could care less about you and me. Not that long ago, under Bush Jr, the GOP held the House, the Senate and POTUS and still nothing was done for the betterment of the Country. Votes, words, hopes, feelings, desires, will not change any of this. We know what must be done. The real question is, are we willing to do it. My guess is a resounding no. Life will go on. Just not as before. Have a blessed day folks.

So, pretty much the entire Republican leadership (McConnell, McCarthy, Cheney) is now on the record as opposing Trump and falling into line in complete submission to the Democrats. Even threatening now to financially oppose any candidate who dares step out of line. Gosh, I can't wait to be chastised for daring to think much less suggest that maybe we should leave what remains of the Republican/Quisling Party. I've been looking at options for doing so. President Trump continues to keep a low profile and shows no signs of creating a new party so far. But I do see a small, currently inconsequential party whose name and founding concept show real promise, namely the Constitution Party. That name and concept is something that everyone of good will can rally around. And it's pretty impervious to attack since even the Democrats claim (falsely) to support the Constitution. Even though it would be a slow start, it would pick up steam as it develops, with candidates fully committed to the fundamental rights guaranteed by the Constitution. And our candidates could vote with the Republicans when THEY support bills that defend our rights. In time, we would become the majority party. One thing is certain, the Republican Party no longer defends the most basic principles of the Constitution and is daily capitulating to those who erode it further. There is NOTHING left in that party worthy of my support, financially or otherwise.

This further shows that Mitch is GOPe/UNIPARTY, that the Republican party is secondary to the UNIPARTY. He's a fraud, and deserves censure by the RNC and state GOP committees. How any Republican senator could continue to back Mitch is beyond me. McConnell and the other UNIPARTY senators need to move across the aisle. Seriously, get out of the party...certainly resign leadership. Who can trust any "deals" you might make with the "opposition"?

How would you oppose Trump-backed candidates, Mitch? Working on a deal with Dominion to rig Republican primaries? Wouldn't put it pass you, and the rest of you 'Principled Conservatives'. You (the Democrat and Republican parties) stole the election from Trump, you staged an 'insurrection', and then you bring in the National Guard to protect your worthless rear ends. We get the message. You jerks are saying Washington belongs to the political class, and not the American people. This would be laughable excepts its becoming clearer by the day that our political class is the problem. We have a 27 trillion dollar debt because of you.

China Mitch has been a problem for years. I'm praying that Donald J. Trump will destroy and obliterate Mitch. We all know China Mitch is dirty from top to bottom. President DJT needs to get his crack investigative teams on Mitch. Dig around a little, and follow the money honey. Then make it so tough and ugly for Mitch that he will have to resign. I want to see Trump really rough this guy up (metaphorically speaking of course) leaving him in tatters (again metaphorically speaking) on the floor of the Senate. This should be the number one priority, getting rid of Mitch by any means necessary.

McConnell was just reelected for six years (2026). He is a slimy, ungrateful person doing this after Trump helped him get reelected. He has interfered in so many senatorial elections, often screwing them up. He wants no independent thinkers, only yes men like Cochran, Burr, Barrasso etc. The only way to get rid of him is to remove him from the leadership position which will not happen because Republican senators have zero backbone. My own senator, Barrasso, WY is one of those. He has his nose so far up McConnells rear it isnt even funny.

McConnell helped Trump get judges approved, but now he's gone completely over to the Dark Side. I think he's doing that because the Dems are in power now. But if he thinks that's going to help him, I'd say he is mistaken. This kind of behavior never wins awards.

#80 - Read between the lines, especially after Mitch's post-impeachment performance. In this article he indicated "Other candidates likely to be backed by Trump, such as his daughter-in-law Lara, expected to make a run for the Senate in 2022, could not count on McConnell's support, he said." What is electability? Especially as determined by Mitch...and his Senate $$$ machine. We saw the game played in '18 by Paul Ryan, who left Republican candidates, including incumbents, wither with no/token support. In essence, Ryan and his UNIPARTY/GOPe allies were willing to sacrifice the House...likely to enable impeachment by the Dems. Looking at national politics, even major state politics through the lens of Republican/Democrat is plainly misleading, no it's deceiving. If that's still a mystery to anyone that the red/blue divide is window dressing for the proles, you haven't been paying attention. That's merely cheering for the laundry. Look deeper.

Can't argue any of the replies but I do wonder why, a little over three months past an election stolen in plain sight, so many think their votes will be accurately counted next time, even in a Republican primary. Has anyone floated a plan to prevent the media from providing non-stop campaigning for democrats?

I learned to like Mr. Trump as POTUS very quickly after he took office. I really did. But I'm okay with folks not liking him too. What I don't get is why they have to diss him so much. These anti-Trumpers want to talk about Republican values, etc., but they forget a cardinal Reagan article of faith: Do not speak ill of other Republicans. Old Mitch is dissing not only Mr. Trump but millions of voters who STILL support Mr. Trump after the fiasco that we are told to call the 2020 General Election. Is that a wise course of action on Old Mitch's part? Can he really risk insulting a huge swath of Republican voters in 2020? Can he afford that? Why can't he find a way to disagree with others without being a real 'hole about it?

I don't know, #12, but his wife's family has extensive business dealings with China and have been major contributors to McConnell's campaigns. Her father, a Taiwanese shipping magnate, made multi-million dollar gifts that boosted their personal wealth significantly. There has been some scrutiny of her potential conflicts of interest, both in her private business activities as well as in her official capacity. The eGOP wouldn't recognize an "electable" Republican if their lives depended on it. McConnell doesn't seem to recognize that the 2020 election cycle, aside from the theft of the Oval Office, represented the power of Trump's coattails in the mind of the electorate. I've always been ambivalent about McConnell, but not anymore ... he's a knave.

#85 - The game in '22 will be for the establishment Republicans, who control the pursestrings, to oppose any Trumpians running for Congress. There are various methods used, including flooding the primary field to dilute opposition to their candidate, who is well supported in the effort. The ardent Trump fools and establishment facsimiles will jump into the race and split that vote. The establishment player wins - often with under 50 percent and with no runoff necessary. McCarthy and McConnell will be pleased. These will become either useful idiots for the GOPe/UNIPARTY, or "made men" in their long careers, as may be their spouses, siblings and offspring. What family is the dynasty in your state? Kennedy? Bush? Cheney? Sununu? Cuomo? None of these are Trumpistas...

He has doing this for his entire career. In 1998, Linda Smith ran as the Republican candidate for Patty Murray's Senate seat here in Washington. This was before PACs were in existence, so the national Republican Senate campaign fund was the only source for organizational support. Because of McConnell's personal animosity to Linda Smith, he cut her off without a penny. His power has always been more important to him than any principles. This man deserves to reap what he has sown.

He has been a determined senator of the GOP to break up the party. He needs to go. Trump's support was the reason he was re-elected. Kentucky think twice.

The problem for McConnell is that he will not have much influence with the 75 million Trump supporters who make up over 80% of reliable Republican voters. His “electable” candidates cannot be elected without support from those Trump supporters. McConnell himself might have had a big problem getting re-elected in Kentucky if Trump had not supported him. There is no doubt that McConnell got the crap scared out of him by the fringe mob that unlawfully entered the Capitol on June 6th. Remember he and Pelosi were the two highest ranking politicians in the Congress who were ultimately responsible for the physical security of the Capitol building and clearly failed in that responsibility. In return both McConnell and Pelosi immediately blamed Trump for the riot to cover their own butts. Pelosi who also got the crap scared out of her, immediately commenced a “snap” impeachment against Trump that failed when Trump was acquitted. Neither McConnell or Pelosi have told the nation what great benefit Trump was looking to gain by a mob unlawfully entering the Capitol building, assaulting police officers, and causing a lot of havoc inside the building as the Congress Critters ran away from the mob to hide. Those rioters violated the law in ways that did not comport with Trump’s law and order agenda, history of supporting law enforcement in their duties or the history of his MAGA supporters who always conducted themselves peacefully during huge rallies held all over the country.

Mitch McConnell has underestimated just how many patriot Americans want to rid the halls of Congress of politicians like him. Trump was elected because he wasn't a career politician and cared more about the American people than lining his pockets with Chinese cash. As a lifelong donor to the RNC I will no longer be wasting my money supporting anyone put forth by McConnell.

I'm inclined to let McConnell blow of steam. He didn't care for Trump yet orchestrated confirmation of 3 Supreme Court appointees and countless appellate and district court nominees as well as successfully managing one impeachment trial and successfully getting an acquittal in the second one. He isn't interested in losing and he'll line up with what he thinks will win. I'd rather have him supporting people he doesn't care for than a supporter like Jeff Sessions folding at the first sign of hostility if those are my choices.
